Baltimore, MD, March 15, 2019 — In response to the horrific shootings at two mosques in New Zealand, Rabbi Avrohom Gordimer, Chairman of the Rabbinic Circle of the Coalition for Jewish Values, made the following statement:  

It only adds to the pain of this atrocity that something as obvious as 'evil is bad' needs to be said. Violence against civilians is abhorrent in all cases, under all circumstances, and hate crimes have no place in civilized society.  

The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), the largest rabbinic public policy organization in America, articulates and advocates for public policy positions based upon traditional Jewish thought.
